Okay, the monitor lizard has nothing to do with art journal pages, but he is cute isn't he? He discovered our compost bucket Monday and even managed to get the lid off. I love the way he is hanging on with those back legs.
And here is the art journal page. We photocopied parts of our body in my art journal class to put into our journals. But I wasn't loving this spread. It seemed kind of boring but looked almost finished. So I decided to go for a change of direction.
I want my eco woman, but I also want something on the right side. Maybe these flying fish?
I colour her with art markers. I am not very adept with coptic markers, I haven't used them much - hence the lines through her top. Anyone know how I can avoid those?
The fish turned out to be too small and not the mood that I wanted. I decided to bring in more foliage so I drew this plant, coloured it with the markers and am in the process of cutting it out.
I glued down eco-woman and brought in some interest into her clothing. Dots on her arms and I think the writing on the shirt distracts pretty well from the marker lines.
